The laughter didn't stop yesterday and today continued to be a day of minties moments and 'all you can do is laugh' experiences. We had to pick up our hire car from the Eurostar terminal, fantastic as it was close and easy. Easy, did I say that?
Well let me clarify.....the getting of the keys to the car was easy but the next few steps were …
